    I have a very small desk so I need a single speaker or maybe bluetooth speakers (with power cable though). Any suggestions? It's for giving parties and stuff in a small 17 sq m flat but I don't want something with heavy bass, I just don't like heavy bass it makes me dizzy not sure why. Thanks guys!

    I have a Jawbone Jambox (the first small version, not the Big Jambox that was recently released) and I love it. It's very small but puts out decent sound and can be used as a wired or wireless (Bluetooth) speaker. I use mine with my iPhone via Bluetooth around the house or when traveling and connected to my MacBook Air when it's connected to an external display on my treadmill desk.

    I came across this recently. But its not stereo.


    On the other hand, I too was looking for better bass and no clutter on the desktop, this is what I use. Sleak and usb powered:

    Just bought a pair of Bose Companion 20 speakers for similar application and was blown away by them. Even fill the outside deck with music.

    Take a look at the Bose SoundLink Mobile. It's a well built product and sounds big for it's size. Plus it's portable and comes with a rechargeable battery and a power cord. It has Bluetooth and an audio in port on the back.

    Where's the love for the B&W Zeppelin Air?

    I bought a Bose soundlink and was originally impressed with it but decided to check out what all the fuss was about regarding B&W. To make a long story short, I returned the Bose and have been playing my Zeppelin everyday after getting home from work. :)

    The Zepplin is one to check out. Another one to check out is the Play 3 or 5 from a brand called Sonos. They are great and serve pretty darn well. :)
